Saha world is an impure nirmanakaya buddhafield where beings experience afflictions due to their own karma, a buddha cant do anything about that. Except teach of course.Tenma wrote: ↑Mon Sep 24, 2018 8:30 pmHow are Buddha Fields Impure? Shouldn't a Buddha/bodhisattva reside in it? Or is it just like earth that certain enlightened ones come and go and we still are impure just like that?jhanapeacock wrote: ↑Mon Sep 24, 2018 1:06 amAs i understand, there are nirmanakaya and sambhogakaya buddhafields, and they also can be impure or pure, Saha world is a nirmanakaya impure buddhafield, so is part of samsara, akanistha gandavyuha is a sambhogakaya pure buddhafield outside samsara.
I heard this also during a teaching by Nyoshul Khenpo. He said that if the Dzogchen teachings/lineages disappear from this world, there are still 12 other world systems we can aspire to be reborn in to continue our dzogchen practice.Pero wrote: ↑Sun Sep 23, 2018 9:50 amAs far as I understand, there are thirteen buddhafields where Dzogchen teachings exists, not thirteen in all. Actually it is not clear to me whether the thirteen reffered to are buddhafields or solar systems in this universe (I understood it to be the latter but now not sure). Does a buddhafield encompass the entire universe?
